“Interesting landscape in beautiful surroundings”

White-Water Terraces (Baishuitai)
Reviewed April 12, 2012

The white water terraces (白水台)are quite remarkable and beautiful. A short walk up from the main road leads you to multiple pools formed naturally by the deposition of calcium.
It is a 3 hour drive from Shangri-la, but is a natural stopping point if you are taking the back road from Tiger Leaping Gorge to Shangrila via Haba.

The terraces are a good 2.5 hour drive from Shangri la. The scenery is spectacular, but the road is winding and can give one motion sickness.
Our guide engaged the ponies for a 2 hour trip to the top of the terraces for 180 yuan, but after about 15 minutes they turfed us off the horses and disappeared. We had to walk the rest of the way ourselves. Our guide later found out and made them apologise, but no refund was offered!
The terraces are beautiful and worth seeing, but it is a long trip each way.
